Welcome to the University Women’s Club of CU Boulder

Welcome to the website of the University Women’s Club of Boulder, Colorado. The club, with over 350 members, is open to women who are members or friends of the University of Colorado.   The purpose of the UWC is to promote friendships among members, strengthen their bonds of common interest, and provide service to the University by funding scholarships for nontraditional CU students. Members have the opportunity to participate in more than 20 Interest Groups, enjoy a CU opera and Brunch with fellow UWC members, and attend Lecture Luncheons with outstanding speakers from Colorado. 2019-2020 is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the UWC.

President’s Message for March/April

In typical years, the April President’s Message is all about reawakening, spring, and capstone events for the end of the year. As we all know, this spring is like none other. We are in the middle of a period of uncertainty that calls on us to practice responsible individual, family and community behaviors.

As I write this column, Boulder, Colorado, and the USA are seeing the effects of the novel corona virus pandemic that is sweeping the world. We do not know how this will all turn out, but we are all cautioned to practice social distancing (along with handwashing and other public health measures). I hope that most of us are really “pulling the trigger” to stop our outings.

For UWC, as a group whose activities are front and center social in nature, this means drastic changes. We have cancelled the all-UWC programs for the spring and summer, and suspect most interest groups will not be meeting. 

But UWC’s primary activities are social. What does social distancing mean in this context? How do we balance the needs for social distancing with the parallel need for social connection? Our collective age makes us most at risk for the corona virus; yet at the same time our collective age makes it most important to avoid social isolation (research shows that a strong correlate of longevity is social connection).  

These are some of the questions that will be occupying your board in its next meeting (which will be virtual). I hope that UWC can define a role for itself and its members. Perhaps we can come up with some creative ideas to help UWC remain socially active even if through virtual events!

I wish each of you safety and health as we weather the coming month. Please stay tuned to your email for updates!
